What statistical analysis software do you use and what discipline is your program? What are the pros and cons of the software you currently use and have you tried switching?

I started the Doctoral program (Ed.D) in Education Leadership in June 2014 and I have just completed the Applied Statistics course and the professor recommended that we use MS Excel for now.

My background is in clinical psychology and most of my experience and formal training through my program has been with SPSS. This is pretty common in my field. I do have some experience with R and am liking it more and more. I find that I can find a package in R that replaces all the specialty softwares that I have used in the past, such as Lisrel, SmartPLS, AMOS, etc.

Having experience with SAS, R, and SPSS, I usually prefer R but I'm glad that I am familiar with the others. If I were to rank the three for my needs it would be R, SAS, then SPSS. I do have to say that the only reason I use SPSS is because my university and colleagues strongly encourage me to my statistics courses using it.
